This is one of my favourite Blind Willie McTell songs, which I first heard in 1966 ! Great performance. This is Mr McTell singing, not his wife Kate. Listen to Rollin Mama Blues, where Kate and Willie both sing, and you can clearly hear the difference.

The vocalist is female, probably his wife Kate. According to Wikipedia, they were married in 1934 and performed together until 1939. The sound quality is closer to that period than the late 1920s.

McTell is one of the greatest of all the early recorded bluesmen. His guitar playing and vocals were unique; an almost falsetto voice matched with a guitar style that was never equaled.
